Are you referring to the Roach?

Roach for me. I may have never thrown a Magnet but I'm not a big fan of the feel. I've thrown a D Reef and it's ... meh.... but maybe I got a dud. Not as much glide as I was hoping for.

The Roach is new and the Big Z I held felt great. Jawbreaker would be a solid putter. Chalk it up to marketing, but of those 3 the Roach wins.

Throw in a Challenger, though, and this is a different discussion.

After a brief flirtation with Enforcers for my over stable distance slot, I just ordered up a fresh stack of new Forces for my bag. A couple ESPs, a couple Big Z, and a couple Z. Kind of interested to see how the Big Z's molded up and fly in comparison to the other plastics. I still have a few seasoned ESPs and a fresh first run I am going to dust off as well. Definitely didn't take me long to come back to the Force.

Looking for a flippy mid from DC. Thinking that a lighter Buzzz in X would suit me well. Any recommendations on where I can buy one - particularly in blue?

No but I really like my test flight Z Machete and have been looking to get another. Do you, or anyone, know how the different plastics line up? I have found Zflx to typically be less stable than others.

I would recommend Disc Golf Center and drop Wade a line on finding one that is flat. Domey X Buzzzes are more common than see Z or ESP.

I would actually recommend an X Stratus for a flippy mid/slow fairway, they are fun to throw.

The Jawbreaker Buzzz models I've had are nice and flat, moreso than the X ones I've seen, the JB are a little less stable from the start to and beat in well. Might be worth a try opposed to trying to chase down a non dome top X.
